Has a company ever given you such a nice t-shirt or shirt yet you are wary of wearing company brands in your off-work time but you cannot bring yourself to giving it away and so the thing has been in your closet for ages? Can you relate?
Relax, i have a solution for you!
I got this very good quality and well fitting white tee but catch me dead wearing a company logo when not required to by work…well unless i am chilling in the house or working out. It has been in my closet over a year!
There was this shirt the hubby got and never wears, so decided to use that one to up-cycle my branded white tee.
Its very busy, this shirt, it has a pocket which i used in this project. See the pocket outline below.
Point to note: Before you take out the pocket, be sure to take measurements of the brand you wish to cover and the pocket or fabric you would like to use. Sounds obvious….but should you forget this step…you are back to square one!
I used a seam reaper to get the pocket neatly out. At this point i need to warn you that the up-cycling project involves sewing.
First pin the pocket to the area you wish to cover. Using a needle and thread, stitch the pocket on to the area. I used small running stitches and white thread.
And viola! New, good quality top right there!!
Have you up-cycled any of your clothes? or anything else really? I’d love to hear from you!
Keep it DIY!
